Shaping the future of travel: macro trends driving industry growth over the next decade | women who travel | Scoop.it

"Amadeus IT Group have commissioned a landmark report by Oxford Economics entitled Shaping the Future of Travel. Macro trends driving industry growth over the next decade.

 

Since the beginning of the global financial crisis the travel industry has faced significant challenges, many of which are only now beginning to abate. As the global economy emerges from the grip of recession the time is right to reflect on what the next 10 years are likely to bring and importantly, where pockets of opportunity and growth exist for our industry."

San Diego Tourism: Happiness is Calling, Spring

Skift: "San Diego Tourism‘s spring ad is a cute short spot that relays its message, “happiness is calling,” quite literally with a series of smiling sun-soaked faces. The backdrop of the ad is a slideshow of San Diego’s beaches and notable attractions."

Travel brands capitalise on social trend of our time - the selfie

Travel brands capitalise on social trend of our time - the selfie | women who travel | Scoop.it

After being named Word of the Year, the “selfie” has started to emerge in travel industry as a viable form of marketing and creating a community.

For those with heads buried in the sand for the past year or so, Wikipedia defines the selfie as:

“a type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone.”

Tourradar (TLabs here), a group booking marketplace has launched a contest where users have to post a picture of “groupie”, a term for so-called group-selfies (as opposed to exuberant music fans).

But, Austria-based TourRadar has twisted the rules of the game somewhat by insisting on none of the groupie images should have its subjects look at the camera.

Groupies that stands out, in terms of originality or a stunning location will win prizes from Tourradar. Users can send the Groupie to Tourradar’s Facebook page, or Tweet to @TourRadar with the hashtag #groupie.

On the other hand, Malaysia Airlines has launched ‘MHInsure Travel Photo Contest’ where the Facebook fans (of Malaysia Airlines) are asked to upload their selfie in the MHInsure Selfie Facebook app. The airline will approve the selfie once it meets its terms and conditions.

Once approved, the owner of the photo should acquire 25 likes for the (selfie) photo. This contest runs until mid-February, with the top three pictures by vote wining free flights on the carrier.

MHInsure is the travel insurance product that customers can buy while booking a flight with Malaysia Airlines

India, a traveller’s heaven, a women’s hell, says US student, who asks, where’s my Incredible India? | women who travel | Scoop.it
We are quite sceptical about India. We are patriotic, there’s no doubt but, everybody is patriotic for his/her country. It’s the land of gods and goddesses, greenery, mountains, hills, snow, tigers, rivers and so much more.

Want to sell luxury handbags to Chinese tourists? Open more stores in Paris

Want to sell luxury handbags to Chinese tourists? Open more stores in Paris | women who travel | Scoop.it

The average Chinese traveler spent 48,000 yuan ($8,000) in France last year, up nearly 11% from 2012. That compares with a 3% overall decline in Chinese tourists’ per-capita spending. Driving that increase is a Chinese love of luxury. The average tourist spent 23,800 yuan ($3,923) in French stores last year—a 20% increase on 2012.

 

The nearly $4,000 Chinese tourists are dropping in French stores is 45% more than in the UK.

 

Brands such as LV have become almost too ubiquitous, meaning that shoppers, especially those heading overseas and looking to make a prestige purchase, are opting for alternatives.

Good to know for the French retailers, both downtown and at the airport, when you also know that Chinese were the 5th nationality for Paris/Ile-de-France visitors in 2013, after Brits, Americans, Germans and Italians.
